They say is to keep the overall height lower in the brochure so it can fit in a standard garage. It is actually to keep the cost down as a 8k window AC unit is much cheaper than a Roof AC unit. I know it still won't fit in my garage not like I would put it there anyway....

I also have a 185RB, the best mod I ever did was to put a 12v fan like the Vaterra vent fan behind the refer. I could not get the temps in the refer section to go below 60 degrees when the temp outside was over 75 degrees. http://www.valterra.com/rv/rv-main.htm. I also got the fan for the inside and now the refer works great.

Good luck with your 185RB we love ours.

That is weird our fridge was freezing things on our last trip we had to turn it down to about 3 and then things were real nice. When we left I was concerned that we had it packed to full and things would not cool well. That was running on gas as we have not had an electric site yet. But at home cooling it down for the trip on electric it also seemed to work well aslo.

We are also looking at a mattress topper but on the 185RB we don't have to store it.

I also ordered a set of camco gutter extensions to try and keep the black streaks off the side. Has anyone used them they were real cheap at camping world.
Hi,

Can you do me (us) a favor and detail the maker of the stabilizer and where you got it? I see mine does have a manufacturer label, but I would have to remove it to see the label.

Thanks,

Scott Moore
